Another unboxing of the Japanese sweets subscription box, Japan Candy Box ! This is the box for October 2015! This post will be picture heavy again, but at the end of the post you have the chance to win a Japan Candy Box, so it is worth continuing reading! ;) Let’s see what delicious sweets I’ve received this time:
Japan Candy Box is a Japanese sweets subscription box by Blippo. Apart from the Japan Candy Box they also have the Kawaii Box, which contains cute toy items, stationary, tiny plushies and so on. I’m very happy to be able to show you the Japan Candy Box October 2015! I love to try out sweets and food from different countries and one thing I especially love about Japanese products is the cute packaging design and the little details they include to make the product most enjoyable. Some of the product I knew already, but there were some new and also delicious discoveries, too!
First of all, this time I really liked the variety of products. It was well-balanced between buiscuits and other sweets. As with the pervious box a DIY Candy was included, which is also a nice thing. The first glance into the Japan Candy Box October 2015 already shows that it is fully packed! It looks super colorful with a variety of packaging designs. The Japan Candy Box contains 10 selected products from Japan. The box comes with a product card listing the names of the 10 products.
The first product I spotted were the Pocky Panda Cookie Sticks. First of all: I really like Pocky! Second, I ordered these Pocky sticks a while back and already did really like the taste. These are chocolate biscuits sticks covered with white chocolate and biscuit crumbles. Delicious!
The Puccho Awawawa Ball Candy in Awa-Grape taste are candy balls with grape taste covered in sherbet powder. The sherbet powder tingles as soon as you put it into your moth and dissolves. I do not like these kind of shwerbet powder sweets, so I could not eat more than one of these balls. The name “Awawawa” comes from the sound that you make when you eat these candy balls by the way :D
Coris Strawberry Whistle Candy reminded me of my childhood! We had these candies in the past too. You can blow through the hole in the candy and it will make a whistling sound. The packaging contains a small, cute box. Inside this box there was a adorable cat-shaped paper clip.
I love mango taste in sweets and I was super happy about the Puccho Mango Chewy Candy. The taste of these candies is nice and not too artificial. Unlike the most chewing candy there are small bits of candy and fruit inside the Mango Chewy Candy.
The Meiji Mini Candy Pack contains small candies which reminded me a bit of mints. The packaging is sweet! I had the Meiji Kotsubu Chocolates in my previous box and like that one there is a letter on the backside of the packaging. You can learn the English alphabet while eating these :D. Oh, and as I mentioned before, this box contained a Kracie Popin’ Cookin’ DIY Takoyaki Set. I didn’t try it out yet, but these DIY miniature food kits seem to be super fun!
Meiji Juice Gummies showed me again that I do not like grape taste in gummies. These are made with 100 % fruit juice with no artificial colors or flavors, but to me they taste super artificial! This is definitively not my cup of tea.
Spotting a small pack of Lotte Koala March Biscuits made me happy again! I love these cute biscuits and these stawberry filled Koala March Biscuits were so delightful! Unfortunately, the bag is so small :D
The next two items are also biscuits and both have an adorable packaging but were not known to me yet: The Bourbon Petit White Chocolate Stuffed Cookies were super delicious! These bite sized cookies are filled with white chocolate between the two biscuits! I ate them directly after I took the pictures for this post.
And the last product from Japan Candy Box October 2015 are the Takeda Tamago Boro Egg Cookies. These soft biscuits remind me of sponge finger biscuits and melt when inside your mouth. The packaging is soooo cute!
My impression on the Japan Candy Box for October 2015 is positive! I liked this box even better than the box I received in June, because it was more balanced between biscuits and candies. There were also new products for me which I didn’t know so far. If you are interested in your own Japan Candy Box you can make a monthly subscription for this box. You can choose between several options: either to order only one box, to order three boxes (3 months subscription), 6 boxes (6 months subscription) or 12 boxes (1 year subscription). Each box retails at 19.90 US$. For the 6 months and the 12 months subscription you pay a bit less per box. Now, if you have reading so far you’ll probably be curious for the giveaway.
